Compression socks for men and women are available as preventative measures to reduce foot and ankle swelling and are great for those who stand or sit for long periods of time. For example, if you're an air traveler who frequently flies - you should definitely consider wearing compression hosiery, especially on long flights.
For women, compression hosiery offer the greatest therapy and protection from vein-related problems that can occur during pregnancy - including achy, tired feet, mild foot and leg swelling, fluid retention, spider veins, and varicose veins. As over 70% of women develop venous problems during pregnancy that can lead to varicose veins and 20% of mothers develop full-blown varicose veins, wearing graduated compression stockings is a proven non-invasive method for treating these vein-related problems during maternity.
Graduated compression socks are available in many styles including dress socks, casual patterned socks, and athletic support socks with CoolMax®: fibers. Compression socks are recommended for those who spend a lot time on their feet, sit for long periods of time, air travel frequently, are pregnant, or have circulation problems.
